CORNWALL, Ontario – A venerable Cornwall truck stop that has operated in the city for decades will close down all of its operations except for the fuelling centre.
Sources have indicated to Seaway News that The Fifth Wheel Truck Stop, on McConnell Avenue near the Highway 401 interchange, is partially closing.
Sources said late Sunday night the only part of the operation that will remain open is the fuelling centre.
The Fifth Wheel Cornwall also operates a restaurant and gift shop, among other amenities.
Social media has been active, with users posting about the changes.
Rob Short, franchisee of The Fifth Wheel’s Cornwall operation, was reached by Seaway News. He was not in a position to comment right away.
Sources said there will be job losses as a result of the changes.
More to come.
